A total of 23 Phuket restaurants and street food spots have made it on to the 2023 Michelin Guide’s Bib Gourmand list. According to a Nation Thailand report, 189 venues across Thailand have made the grade, with street food vendors making up a significant portion of those.

The Bib Gourmand list acknowledges both restaurants and street food businesses that offer high-quality dishes at budget prices of 1,000 baht maximum for a 3-course meal, drinks excluded.

Along with Phuket eateries, 82 restaurants and food shops in Bangkok and surrounding areas, 13 in Ayutthaya, 27 in Chiang Mai, and 11 in Phang Nga all appear on the Bib Gourmand list for 2023. There are also 33 Isaan restaurants representing various locations in the North-East.

The official release of the Michelin Guide Thailand 2023 edition will take place on November 24, alongside the Michelin Star Revelation Ceremony. Gwendal Poullennec from the Michelin Guide describes the culinary scene in Thailand as bringing the best food to budget-conscious foodies.

“Street food provides not only an authentic Thai eating experience, but also a cultural adventure into the tasty Thai culinary tradition.”

Poullennec says the Bib Gourmand list should help promote food tourism across the country, helping to revive local economies as the pandemic subsides.

“Above all, we expect to inspire gourmets and travellers alike to enjoy their mobility experience in exploring local culinary delights across the country’s different cities.”
